NHL Playoffs 2011: Patrick Kane Has Brought Back the Playoff Mullet
2011 NHL Playoffs, Tradition and superstition are two things that professional hockey players and their millions of fans do not take lightly. So for the next couple of months, beards, and now playoff mullets will be seen on every street corner, and bar across Canada and the United States.
The playoff beard has evolved into something that not only players have come to embrace, but also as a bonding experience that they share with fans along the playoff journey.
Legend says that it started with the dynasty of the New York Islanders in the early 1980's, and truly became popular with the New Jersey Devils team's of the mid 1990's. Some players have truly become well-known for their beards over the years, and it has become quite the tradition.
But, last season a new and somewhat refreshing take on the playoff beard was created by the Blackhawks Patrick Kane. Unable to grow a beard in the 2009 playoff run to the Western Conference Finals, Kane grew out a 'playoff mullet' last season; which ended in the game-winning goal in Game 6 of the Finals.
The powers of the mullet may or may not have given Kane and the Blackhawks the upper hand, but it certainly has become a calling card of Kane's. Blackhawk fans everywhere are hoping that the mullet is able to grow long and thick, and yet again makes an appearance at a celebration parade.
President Obama said it was time for Kane to bring back the playoff mullet. Kane listened to the commander in chief, and we shall see if it comes through once again.
